No seizures, no. Not in my case. But I did feel rather poorly and had to take things very quietly. However I am still recovering from a nasty bout of
flu and that could have been a factor as well. Have to say, though, that the way I felt didn't seem related to flu. It was more like a "pre-fit"
kind of thing, if you follow me. (I expect you know what I mean by that.)
Something I can add, though, is that for whatever reasons -- and I suspect there is a scientific basis to it -- I am sometimes very much affected
before earthquakes happen. I don't mean quakes where I live, as we get almost none and they're very small anyway, but in other parts of the world.
The best way I can illustrate this is by the fact that around 28 hours before the devastating quake in New Zealand in February this year, I had my
worst attack in many years, so bad that I decided to post a thread about it. I put up the thread while I was still in recovery mode, so it appeared
here on ATS around 26 hours or so before that NZ quake.
The thread is here
Granted, that could be a coincidence and skeptics will say that's all it was and leave it at that. However, I'm not so sure if we can just push the
matter into the "coincidence" box and be done with it. I also had a pretty rotten time before the big Japan quake in March: unable to sleep, rarely
getting to bed before 2 am for a week prior.
The same happened during the past few days. I got to bed at around 2:30 am today, and when I woke up and finally got on line very late this morning
(my time), I checked the USGS Recent Quakes World Map
as I do every morning, and there
was a huge square over Turkey. They had a mag 7.2 quake today and it looks like it could be very bad there.
BTW, I spend much of my time on ATS in the various quake threads. It's my #1 interest here. I also post predictions for quakes from time to time,
but I don't make new threads, they just sit in one thread that's been running for over 2 1/2 years now. I don't do "doom and gloom" stuff. I just
predict when I have indicators that allow me to do so and the quakes are mostly nothing that would make the world headlines. I've had fair success
but sometimes I'm wrong and when that happens I say so. I can give some links to such posts if you want them.
Now, back to you: you live in WA. That's what caught my eye, because we have been getting a lot of reports from people in your part of the world (the
PNW) of odd rumbling sounds lately. Sounds that seem to come from the sky but also from the ground. Also, just yesterday, there was a thread by a
member asking if other people were getting strange dizzy spells -- meaning people who were otherwise healthy and these spells had no known medical
What concerned me were the repsonses by people in the PNW region: NW OR and also WA.
The thing is, while the skeptics might just laugh and think we're wackos, the fact remains that scientists are aware that sometimes, regions where a
quake is going to happen undergo changes in energy released. These have been documented and measured. It's possible that some people are senstive to
them and are adversely affected and you might be one of those people.
However (and sorry for the lonnnng post) it's also possible that the medication you mentioned could be having adverse effects. Epileptics have to be
very careful when using certain medications as their impacts on you can be amplified way beyond what non-epileptics will experience.
That being said, please keep us posted. If you continue to have problems let me know as I'd then suggest you contact some other members I know of who
also live in WA.
